Welcome. Why not make dinner without the need of cooking nearly anything tonight? Ali Slagle has an simple formulation for assembling a divine summer months meal, no oven or stove or grill essential. With a very little prep, you could make it a cooking-cost-free weekend: Look at out the most current installment of our new vegetarian cooking newsletter, The Veggie, for a raw zucchini salad recipe, then let Iva Dixit convince you that raw onions are the finest foodstuff.
I can not imagine how extensive I have slept on “The Other Two,” a joke-dense comedy about how millennial siblings deal when their 13-12 months-outdated brother becomes an internet-propelled pop star. (His breakout one is “Marry U at Recess.”) Time 2 premiered this week on HBO Max, so go through an job interview with the show’s stars, Drew Tarver and Heléne Yorke (the “other two” of the title), then be part of me in catching up on the first year. And allow me know what you imagine.
A single more Television rec: “The Chair” on Netflix. It stars Sandra Oh as the chair of a university English section riven by campus tradition wars. There are 6 30-moment episodes that you are going to end in a sitting down or two.
I like to use my weekend mornings (iced espresso + iPad) to get latest on pop cultural goings-on that I may well not have compensated near consideration to all through the week. Like the “Jeopardy!” saga: Mike Richards won’t be changing Alex Trebek as host, but he’ll continue to be on as executive producer (for now). Mayim Bialik, who was just lately named as the host of the show’s primary-time specials, will serve as the standard weeknight host quickly. Where by does “Jeopardy!” go from listed here? Fans have some thoughts. And so does Claire McNear, the journalist who wrote a book on the display and whose reporting contributed to Richards getting rid of the web hosting gig.
Your list of lists.
I just started out using “Too Fantastic to Go,” which expenditures itself as an “anti-meals squander app.” It connects you with eating places in your space that have surplus foods that they are marketing at minimized prices. The catch (or the pleasurable portion, relying on your disposition): Precisely which menu items you get are a surprise.
Accurate criminal offense lovers should verify out the podcast “Tom Brown’s System,” hosted by the Texas Month to month journalist Skip Hollandsworth. It is about a teenage boy who disappeared in a small town in the Texas panhandle and the town’s efforts to obtain out what transpired to him.
Here’s your weekend theme track: “No digo que no (vaca y pollo)” by the Catalan musician Rita Payés.
